And you thought I wasn’t going to post any tone on tone fabrics…

Otherwise known as ‘Blender’ Fabric – These are great for borders/change of color value/and well, I guess whatever it is we ‘blend’…. 🙂

If you are interested in this – or any other bundle of fabric – please go here and have a look and then shoot me an email

mail <at> withinaquarterinch <dot> com

Thanks!

And now for the shabby chic portion of the de-stash…

Still working through it all – there are BOXES worth of fabric that I have no room for:(

Civil War Era Bundle added to the de-stash list!

Slowly but surely; I am putting together cute little bundles of fabric that I believehope,  no believe go together in terms of ‘type’.

You know like, Civil War, Shabby Chic, Tone on Tone, and Neutrals… And of course, plenty more color based combinations to come…

For now – a new Civil War Bundle has been added….scroll down to see more photos on that page. Here is a sample!

The de-stash. I think I might cry a little.

NOTE: I HAVE CREATED A NEW PAGE FOR THE DE-STASH SALE… CHECK IT OUT HERE OR CLICK ON THE TAB ABOVE.

When you have oodles and doodles of stash storage you really don’t need to cull; you covet.

When you have NO stash storage space you really can’t covet but must cull.

Alas – I have done a ‘once through’ of the fabric and realized that 3 boxes (of 10 or so that were moved) can be parted with. Something I swore I wouldn’t do because it is all mine and I love it is now something I must do.

I will be posting photos and prices of pre-bundled (by color and/or style) fabric goodies on the blog over the next decade or so. But we can start today:)

All prices do NOT include shipping – to be determined by buyer’s location, no. of bundles purchased, type of shipping wanted, domestic vs. international etc. To give you an idea – figure that domestic shipping is around 5 bucks.

Edited to add:  If you are interested – please send me an email to

shownotes for episode 20 – schlepping your wares on Ebay

Selling online with Ebay – Advice from an amateur – please remember
that this is just friendly advice – I have no affiliation with or
training from Ebay.

Recommendation – sign up with Ebay – it's
free. Look for things that you would be interested in purchasing – take
note of people's choice of category that it is listed in.  Take note of
the photos – just one? Many? Are they compelling? Take note of the
seller's description, their shipping charges, and their feedback rating.

Once
you have a feel for it – take a look around your sewing room and ask
yourself, 'can I turn some of the items I am no longer in love with
into a little money with which to purchase stuff i AM in love with??' 
That is the key to
casual selling on Ebay.  Don't think about
how much money you could make – but just concentrate on cleaning out
the old stuff and getting a few sheckles for it at the same time!

Some helpful things for easier selling…
Take lots of photos – make sure they are clear – if you blog, then you already can!

Find an online source to host them.  That's just fancy for Flickr or for Picasa web albums (my choice).  I also love Picasa
as a photo organizing system on my computer. Once uploaded to the web
album – you can either get the html for embedding a slide show of all
of your images directly into your item's description (in addition to
the 1 free photo given in your Ebay listing). 
PICTURES SELL! You can also use the html for a single photo and add it to your listing (instead of a slideshow).


Use the
turbo lister from Ebay – you can create a template to use again and again – saves a lot of time!


Oh and remember – be nice to your buyers – they could be a friend of yours and you don't even know it!

AND definitely – don't charge anymore more for shipping than your actual cost of shipping. Would you want to pay for it??


I will certainly answer any questions you have – but give me a bit of time for responding – super busy movin' lady right now!!


Oh and consider yourself lucky that I am not sharing any more of the diaper rash than I already have!!

EVERYTHING IS NEGOTIABLE

I’ve started the de-stash….

I have (sadly) started to go through my stashes of craft supplies, both from the fabric/quilty world and the paper/mixed media world.  I simply cannot fathom MOVING all of that to another State!

What’s even more shocking is that I have accumulated all of this stuff WHILE living in California for the last 5 years – yikes!

So – if you head over to Etsy – within a quarter inch – you will find fabrics.  SPECIAL FOR PODCAST LISTENERS AND BLOG READERS (JUST CONVO ME THROUGH ETSY) ANY SET OF FABRICS WILL BE ONLY $10.00 RATHER THAN $15.95!  Come on now, you have to admit that is a great price!  Sold out!

You will also find some great scrap bags of fabric – and the special is buy one get one free!!Sold out!

Over on EBAY I am selling the mixed media craft supplies (paints, glues, walnut crystals, a collection of 32 (basically unused) twinkling H2O’s, etc).

Because of how Ebay works, I can’t do anything about the final prices, but if you do win one of the auctions – then include in the comment box during checkout that you are a listener and I will ADD MORE GOOD STUFF to your box (no extra shipping!).

Thanks for your support everyone!
